Action Centre Notification help

Could someone please help me? I installed Windows 7 Home Premium x64 yesterday and i have put some software on it since them. I notice that my action centre flag in the system tray (set for show icon and notifications) is now taking between 3-5 mins to load after my anti-virus and network status icons and a reboot or restart. Is this normal? I also notice that some past icons that i have now disabled through the programs themselves are still shown in the customise notification icons window. Is this also normal? Any help would be appreciated.

Try defragging the drive windows is on and see if that improves anything?

fluffy is giving you good advice. I would do a disk clean up and ck drive for errors first, though.

Just out of intereset, how long does it take the action centre icon take to load with your systems. Is it the same as mine or does it load instantly?

go to run, go to msconfig, go to startup, see if there are some start up items that you can uncheck. I think maybe you have too much starting up when you boot.

Post a screenshot of msconfig/startup tab and your installed programs. Action Centre should load asap at startup.

go to start menu. In the search area type run. In run type msconfig, In msconfig click on start up. Once there go back to start menu, type snipping tool. Click on the tool and follow directirons. Copy the pic that you make to our forum.
